Neagoe, M and Taskhiri, M and Turner, P, North and North-West Tasmania: Supply Chain and Infrastructure, Northern Tasmania Regional Forestry Hub, Hobart, Tasmania, pp. 1-100. (2020) [Report of Restricted Access]


In September 2018, the Australian Government launched the National Forest Industries Plan: Growing a Better Australia – A Billion Trees for Jobs and Growth. The Plan outlines the Commonwealth Government’s strategy to drive growth in the renewable timber and wood fibre industry. The Plan aims to deliver a billion new trees over the next decade (including 400,000 new hectares of plantations nationally) to meet a projected fourfold increase in global demand for timber and wood fibre products by 2050.

The eLogistics Research Group (eLRG) at the University of Tasmania was commissioned to prepare an assessment report on priority theme two - supply chain and infrastructure. This assessment report aims to identify challenges and opportunities in the North and North-West of Tasmania relating to this theme.

This report aims to provide insights to assist the Commonwealth in future policy development, infrastructure needs, additional processing potential and other opportunities.
